【Emergency Support for Ukraine】
Please donate us to Emergency Relief Fund
With the start of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, the situation there has continued to deteriorate.
Across Ukraine, millions of people are in urgent need of life-saving assistance, such as water, food, medical care, medicine, fuel, electricity, shelter, and warm clothing.
Since February 24, more than 100,000 people* have already crossed the border to seek safety, becoming refugees and being forced to take refuge in neighboring countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova. (*As of March 3)
It is predicted that the number of people evacuating from Ukraine to Europe will increase in the future, and the situation in Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, etc., which was called “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis,” is about to happen again.
Therefore, IVY has launched an emergency support team to provide urgent humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine with the cooperation of NGO, Step-In based in Slovakia.
We would like to ask for your support in this effort.
We are currently interviewing Step-In to investigate the situation there and the needs of the displaced people.
The following is a summary of the current situation that emerged from the interviews.
*There are many people who cannot cross the border due to the confusion in Ukraine.
*Many people cannot cross the border due to the turmoil in Ukraine, and the host country does not have enough systems and guidelines to accept displaced people.
*There is a growing need for food, medical supplies, generators, fuel, and housing.
*As more displaced people are expected to come to the border, support activities at the border will become more important.
We are planning to provide following supports with Step-In (This may change depending on the situation)
1.Provision of health care and medical assistance
2. Provision of first aid, psychological treatment, mental health care
3. Set up Information Points*
4. Distribution of water, food, and other necessities
*To provide information on how to cross the border and the process to be followed in the destination country, so that they could proceed wiht the border crossing and evacuation smoothly.
Your donation will be used to support the emergency relief efforts in Ukraine, and we will keep you updated on our activities.
